'a major contribution to the public discourse, both academic and non-academic, on the illegal drug trade, its world-wide ramifications, and related international development issues...the range of topics covered and the in-depth analysis of the various issues addressed therein, make this book a must not only for academics interested in these matters but most certainly for policy makers and all those engaged in the fight against illegal drugs.' - Sir Neville Nicholls, President, Caribbean Development bank, Barbados

An excellent discussion is provided about the inherent tensions and conflict in the US-Caribbean drug connection. ...The book provides an excellent overview of the problems, the political consequences, and ongoing efforts to attack the problem. Necessarily, the problems and strategies are dynamic.' - Bruce Zagaris, Berliner, Corcoran & Rowe, LLP
